  • Senior leadership experience leading multi-disciplinary teams in environments with diverse stakeholders, preferably in the social sector.
  • A policy background, with a deep understanding of the role data and analytics can play in informing decisions and policy.

  • Proven experience managing complex stakeholder partnerships / relationships at a senior level.
